Jhulley! We’ve shortlisted volunteers for 2015 and are working on lesson planners now. The application date has passed but we are still considering suitable applicants on a need basis. So if you are looking to volunteer with us, please email us for the volunteer form with the subject: Your-Name Volunteer 2015.

We are also looking for people who might not be able to travel to Ladakh but would like to help out with other tasks that are involved in the running of the project such as fundraising and curriculum development, etc. There are many things that go into planning a project and we require as much help as we can get.

If you are going to be in Leh during the months of July, August and/or September and would like to help us with administrative, co-ordination and office work, please email us at
If you are looking to contribute or make a donation, please email us with the subject: Donate/Contribute.

Thank you

Avalokitesvara Trust Office in Leh

The AT office is on the first floor of a restored heritage house in Leh old town that goes by the name of Gotal House. This is where volunteers undergo orientation, are prepped on the finer points before they embark on their journey to schools. Apart from tweaking lesson plans, having long detailed discussions and debates about children, schools and the various education systems today, we pack large boxes with books, toys and stationery and often cook and lunch, which we enjoy with a magnificent view of the Zangskar range. Very often we use this space as a place of rest and reflection. Here are some photos..
